Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 6 ounces smoked ham, cut into chunks
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 pound dried split peas

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large heavy pot, cook the ham in the butter over medium heat, turning occasionally, until browned, about 6 minutes. Transfer the ham to paper towels to drain, keep the fat in the pot.

  2. Stir the onions, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper into the fat in the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Stir in the carrots, celery, stock, and split peas and bring to a simmer. Stir in the reserved ham and cook, stirring occasionally, until the split peas are very soft and falling apart, about 1 1/2 hours. Season the soup with salt and pepper to taste and serve.
